John Deere strives to provide you with the best possible experience. For improving our products and the usability we are using analytics technologies by 3 rd parties. The information collected doesn’t allow us to identify you but helps analyzing crashes, bugs and relevant information to improve and enhance the quality of our products and services. The IP address from your access provider is being scrambled in the last digit group which only allows an approximate localization of the access but not any exact identification of your location and person. You have the possibility to disable this tracking and analytics functionality via the Cookie Statement settings provided on the deere.com website. The Cookie Statement explains further technologies in more detail which might be used in this regard.

2       For what purposes and on what legal basis do we use your data?

We process this personal data for the following purposes:

3       Who will we share your data with?

We share your information with the following recipients:

Personal data may be shared with government authorities and/or law enforcement officials if required for the purposes above, if mandated by law or if required for the legal protection of our legitimate interests in compliance with applicable laws.

4       Where will we send your data?

Where information is transferred outside the EEA, and where this is to a John Deere affiliate or vendor in a country that is not subject to an adequacy decision by the EU Commission (a list of such countries is available here ), data is adequately protected by John Deere’s use of EU Commission approved standard contractual clauses according to Art. 46 (2) GDPR when setting up such relationships with affiliates or vendors. A copy of the relevant protection mechanism can be provided to you on request via John Deere’s Data Subject Rights Request Form which can be found on isg-contracts.deere.com . The adequate level of data protection is ensured by relying on the hosting provider’s Privacy Shield certification according to Art. 42 GDPR which is accessible here or the service provider’s binding corporate rules. Transfers to affiliates of John Deere will take place using adequate measures, such as binding corporate rules, standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission to protect Personal Data, other valid transfer mechanism(s), or on the basis of permissible statutory derogations.

5       What rights do you have in relation to your data?

You have the right to ask us:

These rights may be limited in some situations – for example, where we can demonstrate that we have a legal requirement to process your data. In some instances, this may mean that we are able to retain data even if you withdraw your consent.

Where we require personal data to comply with legal or contractual obligations, then provision of such data is mandatory: if such data is not provided, then we will not be able to manage our contractual relationship, or to meet obligations placed on us. In all other cases, provision of requested personal data is optional.

If you wish to receive further information on your Data Subject Rights please visit our enterprise privacy statement on isg-contracts.deere.com . If you want to exercise your rights regarding your personal data, please use the Data Subject Rights Request Form which can be found on isg-contracts.deere.com .

In the event you have unresolved concerns, you also have the right to lodge a complaint complain with a supervisory authority, in particular the data protection authority in the Member State of your habitual residence or place of work.
